Texas Woman Accidentally Shoots and Kills Her Boyfriend While Posing for Social Media With a Rifle ‘Like Bonnie and Clyde’

A woman is facing manslaughter charges after she shot and killed her boyfriend as they posed for a picture in Texas.

Autumn King, 20, accidentally shot her boyfriend Eric Charles Allen, 26, two days before Christmas as they posed with a rifle for a Snapchat photo.

According to the affidavit, King and Allen, who lived in Pflugerville, had been dating for two years before the shooting.

They have a child together and lived with each other in the 12500 block of Rampart Drive, where the shooting happened around 12.30pm on December 23, police said.

‘Autumn stated that she was holding a tan assault rifle and that Eric was holding Autumn’s cell phone because he was going to take a picture of her holding the assault rifle’, according to the affidavit seen by The Statesman.

King told officers she had the rifle pointed towards Allen and that the assault rifle ‘went off’.
